Tasmania is tops

 

When the world’s most trusted travel publisher, Lonely Planet, tells the world Tasmania is ‘ripe for the picking’ this is your cue to head down south with an appetite. Named fourth in the world’s Top 10 Regions in the World to Visit in 2015 in the Best in Travel 2015 publication, it's time to find out why Lonely Planet are literally salivating over our wilds, flavours, culture and eccentric  year-round events. 

 Did you know that Tasmania has diamond? Girls love diamonds, and boys give them with love. But they can be pretty pricey so why not venture over to Flinders Island and hunt for your own. Not only will you find yourself on one of the most spectacular patches of Tassie turf, but you may just find your very own Killiecrankie Diamond treasure to slip in your pocket.

The Gordon Dam is pretty spectacular- it’s manmade incredible. But when you’re told to hike a leg up over the guard rail, with a 140 metre drop on the other side, well that’s the definition of crazy. Your whole body will tell you no, but follow through with the southern hemisphere’s tallest commercial abseil and you’ll never feel braver.

Want to impress your friends? Just tell them you hired your own private island in Tasmania. There’s reason Vanity Fair has shared this secret, a place of untamed Tasmanian wilderness in the heart of the D’Entrecasteaux Channel. Fish from your deck chair on the boathouse jetty and shuck wild oysters off the rock shelf….you get the idea. You’ll never want to leave.
